Vitalistic Healthcare

Our Vitalistic approach to Chiropractic Care embraces health from an Above-Down-Inside-Out model. It’s designed to optimise your full health potential in all aspects of your life.

How does Chiropractic work?

Our only focus is on YOU and finding the root cause of your pain.  We look to your nervous system and your brain-body connection to assess and then relieve and reduce your back pain, neck pain or sciatica

How do I know if I should see a Chiropractor?

Everyone should have a routine checkup with a chiropractor at least twice a year.

Why do we say this?  If you can catch the early underlying signs that your spinal health and nervous system are deteriorating (neuro-functional disorder), you can take proactive steps to nip any issues in the bud before the symptoms start.

Typical signs that you should see a chiropractor are, back pain that is constant or episodic pain in your body that comes and goes more frequently than before. Another sign is noticing that you’re losing mobility or range of motion in your your arms, legs, hips, knees and neck. Are are struggling to do the everyday things you used to do easily? If so, this can be another sign of neuro-functional disorder, and we can help with that.

Typical symptoms that can be helped by seeing a chiropractor include:

headaches & migraines, low back pain, sciatica, neck pain, knee pain, hip pain, walking with a limp and poor posture.

Are you suffering with pain and discomfort that’s affecting your day to day living, working or social life?  We say there’s no time like the present to reach out to us for an assessment at one of our clinics in Bridgend or Porthcawl.

What if I’m not in pain?

We offer so much more than relief from back & neck pain, symptoms or conditions. Chiropractic can help to optimise your health and way of life long after your initial symptoms have subsided.  More importantly they help to prevent flare-ups of your original symptoms too.

Our tribe (practice members) understand that just like brushing your teeth every day to keep them healthy, regular spinal check ups keep us in tip top shape.  

Regular adjustments help us to adapt to the ever increasing changes and demands in the world around us and help give us a better quality of life as we age.

Why choose us?

You’ll have face to face appointments with our Doctor of Chiropractic – a specialist in neuro-musculoskeletal conditions.

We offer same day appointments where available.

You see the same Doctor of Chiropractic at each visit.

In a nutshell...

Every function your body performs, is regulated through your brain & nervous system.

What is Nerve Interference?

In a nutshell, nerve interference is a term we use to describe nerve irritation, inflammation or damage.  It happens when one or more vertebra are pressing on a nerve to such an extent that it stops all or parts of your body from performing and functioning properly. 

You have a total of 33 vertebrae in your spinal column: the cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions provide mobility helping you to bend, reach and stretch.  The sacrum and coccyx are fixed vertebrae yet still provide a vital role in the overall function of the spinal column the most important of which is protecting your spinal cord and nerves.

Chiropractors call this interference to your nervous system a spinal misalignment or vertebral subluxation complex*.

The Warning Signs

When you have a pinched nerve (interference), your ability to carry out normal everyday tasks & activities diminishes and the way in which your body functions starts to deteriorate.  When this happens your body will send you subtle (pain) signals to start with, that are really a warning signal that your body is no longer coping. These signals usually start off as minor symptoms and if ignored for long enough may develop into more chronic conditions

As chiropractors, we know where to look for the cause of any problem in the nervous system.  By locating and removing interference to your spine & nervous system we help your body to start the healing process and restore the vital brain-body connection.  This then allows your body to innately repair itself naturally.

Remember, pain is your body’s innate warning signal, it’s designed to help keep you out of danger and lets you know when to take action, to stop further damage from taking place.  Call today and we’ll help you stay pain free for as long as you want to be.

Why Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is based on science and universal laws.

Your entire body has the power to heal itself, regulate itself and regenerate itself automatically via your brain, spinal cord and nervous system. It is a scientific fact.

Vitalistic Chiropractors work solely with this innate healing ability of your body, it’s why chiropractic adjustments work 100% of the time, every time.

Who can benefit?

Everyone from young to old! Children, infants, pregnant mums, athletes, professionals and seniors – in short anyone who is pursuing an fully active, symptom free life needs to maintain the integrity of their spine and nervous system on a regular basis.

The Role of the Chiropractor

To detect & correct nerve interference in all people. Not just because someone has a symptom or condition, but also because the health of the spine & nervous system is an essential requirement for an optimal quality of life.

 Top 3 Causes of Nerve Pain

Do you often find that your body’s just not performing or functioning as well as it used to, and you just don’t know why? All you know is, it’s not due to a fall or physical trauma.  Well, did you know that chemical and emotional stress can also trigger nerve pain along your spine?  Left untreated it can cause as much discomfort as physical bumps and falls!  That’s where we can help, because we understand the principle of holistic healing from above-down-inside-out, we always look for the real cause to your health problem rather than treating the surface symptom.  We have the specialist experience & know how to help you ensure your body is strong enough to tackle the daily effect these top 3 life stressors have on you, your spine and nervous system.  And we’re here to help you combat them so you can go about your life as nature intended and designed you to – in health!
